Alaric Morgan Deryni portrait

Here's another portrait from the Deryni Portfolio of 1981. This blond stalwart is Alaric Morgan, author Katherine Kurtz's heroic knight and protector of the royal family. He swashbuckles his way through many a book, and in "Childe Morgan," the most recent Deryni tale published, shows his valor (and magical powers) even as a boy of fourteen. He appears in so many Deryni adventures that I sometimes think that he is the real hero of the books and not the young king he protects.

Original art is black ink on illustration board, just now colored in Photoshop, about 2" x 3", fall 1981.
